If you are interested in becoming a vendor in the future we would love to review your application!
The deadline for the 2022 Festival has already passed, but we’ll post the application for our 2023 event in early October. Mark your calendar and check back then!
The Celtic Festival committee juries all applications and selects the vendors for each festival. Preference is given to vendors who feature Celtic-themed/related merchandise or services.
The Celtic Festival committee reserves the right to return or deny any application which is incomplete or not paid in full by the stipulated deadline. All decisions made by the committee regarding acceptance or non-acceptance of your application are final.
Notification of acceptance status shall be sent to all applicants no later than December 31st. Anyone not selected to vend will have their booth fee refunded in full.
If you have additional questions regarding the application or selection process we will be happy to speak with you.
Booth spaces are indoor! The building is warm and floors are heated, do not leave heat-sensitive merchandise on the floor.

As a vendor, you’ll automatically qualify to receive free or reduced-priced Festival tickets. This includes free daytime admission for those in your booth, and 2 free headline concert tickets for both Friday and Saturday nights, with seats located in the “tier 4” sections.
New this year- we will no longer have general seating. All seats will be reserved. Vendors will receive a coupon code to use when reserving seats online. Once seats are reserved, the required tickets can be printed to show at the door.
Seat upgrades to a better “tier” are also available for an additional cost.
As a festival vendor, you have the option to advertise in our Celtic Festival Program. The Celtic Festival Program is 8.25 x 10.75, glossy, full color, and contains event information such as schedules, artist bios, pictures, workshops listings, and more.
The program is handed out at admissions during the festival. Additionally, 2 weeks before the festival it is mailed out to approximately 11,000 addresses in Evanston, Robertson, Fort Bridger, Mountain View, Lyman, Granger, Opal, Diamondville, Kemmerer, Cokeville, Randolph, Woodruff.
Vendors can choose to either have us design their ad, or they can provide a completed ad copy. Pricing & deadlines are provided to selected vendors.
Save money, reserve, and pay for your Festival t-shirt in advance to be sure you get the size you want. The special vendor price is $10 (the regular price is $15).
